Boudreau managed to snag a new job already; he started coaching the Anaheim Ducks today.
Not too sure what to make of it; the whole situation is kind of weird. Amazing that he managed to only be out of work about 67 hours. But I think it was a mistake for him to start there so soon; I think it would have significantly helped to make him a better coach if he had allowed some time for lessons from the Caps (good AND bad) to sink in.
Regardless, congratulations and good luck, Bruce. We wish you well 81 or so games a year. (Oh, and kick the snot out of Colorado for us, this year, too.)
